Mission: Our mission is to worship God, witnessing to Jesus Christ by serving the community and the world in which we live all through the power of the Holy Spirit. History: History of St. Augustine's In-The-Woods Episcopal Parish. Fifty years ago St. Augustine's in-the-Woods was created as one of two missions undertaken by Trinity Church in Everett to bring the Episcopal Church into being on the 52-mile long island just to the west. This was in response to a request by a small group of local Episcopalians. Although we are a young parish, we do have traditions. The foremost is participation. The hard labor, creative talents and resources of parishioners have been applied at every stage of parish development. As the first parish building went up in the early 1960's, churchwomen purchased the steeple with money earned from a bake sale in Bayview, a hot dog sale in Freeland, and serving dinners at Chamber of Commerce meetings. A gift of stock paid for the pews. Bulletins were printed on a donated duplicating machine. Traditions begun at that time, notably the Trash and Treasure Sale, have continued to this day. The first church building was dedicated by Bishop William Lewis on August 11, 1963. Within a few years, however, the congregation, then a mission, outgrew its worship space. By 1977, plans took shape for a new church. Ground was broken on May 4, 1978. A church choir officially came into existence early in 1979. Even as it was building a new church, the parish found resources to sponsor several Vietnamese refugee families. St. Augustine's in-the-Woods officially became a parish in the fall of 1981, calling Fr. William M. Burnett as Rector. He had been at the mission for twelve years as vicar, so the call didn't have to go far. At a joyous parish meeting in January 1982, the first vestry was elected. Over the years, the parish has undergone subtle transformations. The 1970's were turbulent times during which young people challenged the traditional forms of religion. The Episcopal Church was undergoing its own upheavals over ordination of women and adoption of a new prayer book. However, St. Augustine's remained engaged, even though a few members left the parish in protest at liturgical change. The young families of the early 1970's grew up. Some moved away. A few were lured by fundamentalist churches. Within a decade St. Augustine's was, to a large extent, a congregation of retirees, people drawn to a still-pastoral island just a twenty minute ferry ride from the expanding "Pugetopolis". St. Augustine's in-the-Woods has always been deeply involved in the life of South Whidbey, the churched and the unchurched. In 1981, Fr. Burnett and a half dozen other clergy formed a proposal for a telephone ministry using lay people trained in basic counseling. That particular idea never took off, but out of these discussions arose an organization called Helping Hand, a ministry to individuals and families in crisis. Several members of St. Augustine's were instrumental in its creation, and Fr. Burnett chaired the board as Helping Hand struggled to its feet. The mid-1980's saw a broadening of the parish's outreach. A 1986 sabbatical trip by Fr. Burnett to Russia planted the seeds for our sister parish relationship with St. Nicholas Cathedral, an Orthodox parish in Pavlovsk, near St. Petersburg. The parish membership has changed again in the 1990's. Several young families have joined, finding the parish accepting and outgoing. Children once again enliven parish life. St. Augustine's attracts parishioners from a wide area. Continuing a long tradition of involvement in diocesan affairs, a member of St. Augustine's congregation chaired the Diocese of Olympia's capital campaign in 1991. As long ago as 1975, a parishioner chaired the nominating committee that drew up a list of candidates for the election of a new diocesan bishop. St. Augustine's has helped foster ecumenical cooperation in the South Whidbey community. The ministers' weekly Lection
